The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program transforms mature learners into leaders. Doctoral candidates learn the most advanced decision-making techniques, while also developing the research and writing skills that accompany high-level responsibility in the academic and business environments. Business executives must be able to perform in a dynamic environment where market expansion is global, where competition presents ever changing decision making frames, and change is the norm. Excellence in leadership, strategic management, and organizational change management are essential to develop effective corporate executives and hence organizational viability. Tuition for the DBA is $240 per credit and $14,400 for the entire 3-year degree program.
